"Spider-Verse" is essentially a war story, so there’s no guarantee Gwen Stacy will survive. But if she does, would you be interested in telling more stories with her?

Renzi:Of course! I’d love to do more Gwen stories with Jason and Robbi!

Latour:Absolutely. I’m not involved in the grander strokes of “Spider-Verse,” so I don’t know what the big plans are, but I do know she’ll be making a couple of appearances in Dennis Hopeless’ new “Spider-Woman” book, and I’m thrilled by that. Dennis is going to do fun things with her. If she’s around after all the dust clears, and everyone seems to want it, I think there’s probably more that could be said. So long as it’s natural and in keeping with the tone we’re trying to establish.

Rodriguez:I think we all would, deep down. I think we all have a bit more to say with her, but I guess that’s really up to the readers to make this issue a hit, and the powers that be. I hope we gave the reading audience a Spider-Woman that’s more than just background filler, or just a character whose sole existence was to fill in a copyright hole.

I dunno about you guys but I could read 100 issues of this, easy.

Wow, it’s so hard to understand why a woman-written comic about a female superhero who wears a sensible costume, writes fanfic, and stuffs her face with tasty gyros is so popular and trendy, while a cover for a forthcoming male-written book that portrays its female superhero as sexxily posing for porn sexxx in a suit that clings to every anatomical feature of her 22-inch waist and ass is widely derided. I mean, the thing is that it’s just really mysterious. It’s like how audiences say they’re interested in Black Panther and Ms. Marvel movies, when really what they want is even more white male superheroes. People are so confusing! 

One of the first names on the “new releases” list every time the Comixology app updates is “Ms. Marvel” and it makes me very very happy.

Filed under the spider woman book looks like a trainwreck and I'm sad about it
